What you need to know

  • Nursing @ Michigan hires GNs year-round depending on the availability of positions that consider GNs.

  • A GN is a graduate nurse who has graduated from an accredited school of nursing but does not have a RN license yet. Here at Michigan Medicine, depending on the position, some units require that the new hire already have their MI RN license before their Date of Hire.  Some units will opt to hire GNs, but the GN must successfully pass N-CLEX and be licensed as an RN in the state of Michigan no later than 45 days from date of hire.  Be sure to check the job opening under “Required Qualifications” to determine the licensure requirement  prior to DOH.

Tips for Applying
